Do you know where your most-used files and directories are? Sure, there’s more than a few commands you can run to find out, but ncdu is a great tool for this purpose. Using ncdu, you can scan your entire hard disk (or any mounted filesystem) and determine where your storage pain points are – and take action!
In a previous video we went over the basics of storage, and in this episode of Linux Essentials, I’ll show you how to automatically mount storage volumes when you boot your server. The primary focus will be going over the /etc/fstab file.
Storage volumes are essential to our Linux servers and workstations, but how do we format and mount additional storage volumes? In this episode of Linux Essentials, I’ll walk you through the process of formatting additional storage volumes and mounting them in your Linux instance.
Following up on my low-energy FreeNAS build, here’s another server build – this time for virtualization. In this video, you’ll see the process of building a low-energy Proxmox server, and just like the last build – this one uses only around 55 watts!
Saving power in your homelab can be a very important factor in your build. In this video, you’ll see the process of building a lower energy storage server, that uses only around 55 watts! FreeNAS is shown as an example, but other NAS platforms can be used as well.
This video is the first of several low-energy server ideas I’ll be showing off. This time around, we explore the setup of a storage server, but on a Raspberry Pi. This will greatly decrease power-usage. OpenMediaVault will be installed on the Raspberry Pi, and you’ll see the entire process in this video.
